Over 2,000 people who have attended stag and hen parties around the UK were interviewed, and the favourite destination for hen and stag parties is now Bournemouth, according to the Bournemouth Daily Echo.
Who would have believed that this once tranquil Victorian spa town on the south coast of England could have turned into a party capital in just a few years.
It wasn’t too long ago that Bournemouth was well known just for it’s miles of golden sandy beaches, well that and having one of the largest proportions of elderly people in the UK, since many people moved there to retire.
Then came the foreign language schools in the 1960’s, and in the last few years the town has seen a number of nightclubs and bars opening, catering to the younger party crowd who want to have a good time and party like celebrities.
The recent trend of turning a stag and hen night from just a local night out to a long weekend getaway has resulted in Bournemouth being the top destination in the UK, beating rival cities that include Brighton, Newcastle and Liverpool.
So why is this I wonder? Bournemouth does have some excellent nightclubs of course, that is the number one criteria for a stag and hen night location, but the local area also offers some other opportunities for those who are looking for more than just a crazy night out in a club. There is the beach and watersports of course, horse riding or bike riding in the New Forest, paragliding and other daredevil activities, and numerous places to explore.
